Configuring XMPP Smartermail Chat With Thunderbird
In this example we will show Bromleymail XMPP Service, but the process is very similar for Facebook, Twitter, Google Talk and XMPP.
Start the New Account Wizard
At the top of the Thunderbird window, click on the
menu, then click and then click :
Use your Full email Address as your username
Enter the email password for the service to run
Enter Local Alias
This will be displayed when you talk to people.
Expand XMPP Options
Now select connection security " Allow sending the password unencrypted"
For XMPP, you will have to enter your XMPP server name, e.g. manmx01.bromley.net
Port 5222 is required
Select Connect this account now and press finish
Use the Chat Tab to start and join conversations
Click on the Chat Tab next to the Write Tab to start and join conversations.
Chat is included in Search
Like any other type of Thunderbird account (e.g. email and RSS), Chat is integrated with search.
